HC Deb 20 January 1986 vol 90 cc21-2W
19. Mr. Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will consider granting assistance for those farmers whose farms were badly affected by the weather last summer but which lay outside the boundaries of the parishes which qualify for aid.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

Although most farmers were affected by the bad summer, I am not prepared to go back on the difficult decisions that were taken and announced in November, which concentrated assistance on those in the most disadvantaged areas.
